Heimat II: A Chronicle of a GenerationDirected byEdgar Reitz
Arguably the best film (or should that be film cycle) you've never heard of. Sumptuous, warm but intellectually firepower-ful stuff chronicling the coming of age of a bohemian student-genius in Munich through the full gamut of the 1960s. Oh and I wrote my thesis on it, so feel fee to ask me anything you like :) Particularly great for fans of film, music, visual arts, history or anyone improving their German.
Once you've seen it, you feel the urge to let your dear ones get a glance of it.
Even if they find it difficult to comprehend or get tired by the long- cut scenes, you've done your duty to the soul of this movie.
